Republican Senator Corker Calls For "Radical Change" In The White House

Tennessee Republican Senator Bob Corker has just unloaded on President Trump as he spoke to reporters...

"I do think that there do need to be radical changes. The President has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrates in order to be successful. And we need for him to be successful, our nation needs for him to be successful. It doesn't matter whether you are republican or democrat. We need for our president, the world needs our president to be successful."

 

"He also has recently not demonstrated that he understands the character of this nation. He has not demonstrated that he understands what makes this nation great and what it is today. He has got to demonstrate the characteristics of a president who understands that.

 

And without the things that I just mentioned happening our nation is going to go through great peril.

 

"We should hope that he inspires, that he does some self-reflection that he does what is necessary to demonstrate stability, to demonstrate competence, to demonstrate that he understands the character of our nation and works daily to bring out the best in the people of our nation.

Corker’s comments come a day after he appeared in Knoxville and declined to rebuke Trump for his statements about the violence that erupted in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend.

“I did not see them (Trump’s comments),” he said.

 

“I don’t see a lot of television, I apologize … look, I respond in my own way. My comments are the ones I focus on and I think the media does a plenty good job and has plenty of panelists on and others giving editorial comment about other peoples’ comments and mine."

Watch the full interview below...

Separately, the IJR quoted a GOP aide who said that “It's just frustrating to be constantly reacting to his sh*t.... The president has torched whatever political capital or moral authority he ever had,” he said, adding that “he is uniquely incapable of political leadership. If we get tax reform done, it won't be with his help. It'll be in spite of him and his vortex of incompetence and destruction.”

And a little research shows where their allegiance lies.  Bob Corker's donors include The Morgue, The Squid, UBS and also Apollo Global Management who bankrupted a TN corp in a leveraged buyout.  Interestingly, Apollo is run by former Drexel Burnham executives.  Drexel Burnham, the company that pleaded guilty to mail and securities fraud.   "On May 12, 2015, the private equity firm Apollo Global Management announced  it was unloading the remainder of its stake in Noranda Aluminum. Apollo had gained control of the Tennessee-based company in a 2007 leveraged buyout and had subsequently followed a familiar playbook in the cutthroat world of corporate takeovers: It saddled Noranda with the debt it had used to buy the company and then extracted large dividends. As Noranda struggled to stay solvent, Apollo eventually cashed out of the firm. In early 2016, the debt-riddled aluminum company declared bankruptcy, shut down its largest smelting plant in Missouri, and laid off hundreds of employees."http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2016/06/bill-clinton-gave-six-figur… http://www.opensecrets.org/members-of-congress/contributors?cid=N000274… Interestingly, Bill received $250,000 for a speech to Apollo and Hillary made $225,000 for one.

sadly, the private equity bloodsuckers are attached to just about everyone in DC, making sure their preferential tax, law and every freaking other type of treatment is 100% fully in their nasty little favor. good thing the corn pone nazi's can google their addresses when this turns really ugly and they're looking for scalps.

Corker, Graham, McCain and McConnell are not Republicans. They are sellout shills. Corker represents my home state of TN and needs to be voted out. In the wake of 2008 Corker sponsored the “Covered Bond bill” to allow banks to make securities backed by credit card and auto loan debt. A government backed conduit for banks to offload garbage loans into pension funds.

Having failed to make him a commie colluding with Russia, they now will attempt to paint Trump a racist.

Pretty predictable leftist garbage through and through.

There is something damn good and ugly going on with the American Left-seeing as they'd rather lay down with Senator Joe McCarthy and Brother John Birch looking for Russians in every nook and cranny, and now willing to torch the Dixie electorate totally, in pulling down their monuments of American history, than let American electorate
vote prevail.

I have a soft spot in my heart for Trump, because I think total breakdown in Washington is a net good thing.  No chance that he could drain the swamp, but he can definitely shit in it over and over.But at some point you have to admit the guy is just too incompetent to survive.  He's screwed the pooch so many times in a row, I think it's over for him.  Corker's quotes were the last warning.  But Trump is too thick to get it or discipline himself, so prepare yourself to say goodbye.

yes, that is what is needed, never understood why he won't do it.  Perhaps he is blackmailed, we know Sessions is.  Corker like most Senators are blackmailed, probably with Pedo stuff.  Coming publc and naming names is the only hope for Trump.  You can see they are using this since Russia did not work to impeach.  As long as Trump has McMaster, you know he is blackmailed.

John Trump, Uncle of Donald Trump is the man who stole 45 trunks of secrets from Nikola Tesla. He explored scalar waves under the pretense of radar studies, which are similar technologies. He founded RadLab at MIT which was military lab on campus. Trump may have access to scalar technology or such groups

Russia and Israel also have scalar technology

Rightful heir was Tesla's family in Serbia. Somehow technology made it's way to Israel. We could wish Trump was a buffer against ZOG, but actions say another case. Trump seems to favor state right which is main reason why Inner City of London wants him removed, and the intelligence agencies are fomenting another Civil War. Apparently the first was not conclusive
